First post! Draw yourself as a fantasy or sci-fi character (or a mixture of both)! Although this prompt wasn’t chosen with the random word generator as future prompts will be, I thought it would be a fun way for people to introduce themselves to the blog WITH ART! :D
New prompt will be posted on 6/7/14.
Long time no post! I have reasons though, I swear. Currently, I’m working as a second pixel artist on "A Dragon Named Coal". It’s a dark fantasy, metroidvania game and it’s awesome. If you’re interested in checking it out…
In other news, I’ve started a new group blog called "Characters Weekly"! This blog is designed to get your creative juices flowing and foster a welcoming, fun environment for artists of all levels to share their work.
Every week, a character prompt is posted choosing three, randomized words. Artists then work off this to design a character based on their own interpretation of the prompt. It could be a 20 minute sketch, a full-blown digital color piece, a traditional painting, etc. Time and effort are more important than skill level.
This group is open to anyone who wants to participate! Simply reblog the prompt with your image attached and we will in turn repost it on the Characters Weekly site with full credit!
My first real attempt at painting. About 30 minutes. Got a little frustrated near the end because I was working too small and didn’t have any tiny paint brushes. Overall a good experience though, and I think I captured Brian’s likeness pretty well. More experimentation with acrylics to come.
